Time and again experts recommend wearing face coverings and cloth masks to prevent people who are unwittingly contagious from spreading their germs and the virus that causes COVID-19 in public places.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a recommendation just recently, advising everyone to wear a cloth face-covering mask in public to slow the spread of coronavirus.
While there is still an ongoing debate on the efficiency of non-medical face masks, President Donald Trump still implies that we may soon hear revised nationwide recommendations on why we should be wearing face masks to help impede the spread of the virus. This is despite initial claims that it is unnecessary for the general public to practice mask-wearing in addition to hand washing and social distancing.
But first, we need to understand the difference between a surgical face mask and a non-medical face mask.
A cloth face mask is much different than a surgical mask or an N95 mask, which is the kind of highly protective respirator equipment so desperately needed among healthcare professionals right now.
Anyone who isn’t fighting on the frontlines of this health crisis that is in possession of extra N95 or surgical masks is encouraged to send them directly to those in need.
Medical experts urge us that while it is good for all to wear masks, front-liners should come first.
Now that we have basic knowledge on the distinction, it is quite normal to wonder whether a non-medical face mask can really do something beneficial and if we even need to buy one?
Well, according to the CDC’s website, at least for right now, you don’t need to wear one unless you’re caring for someone who is sick or you’re experiencing symptoms. The primary benefit of covering your nose and mouth is that you protect others.
While there is still much to be learned about the novel coronavirus, it seems that many people who are infected are shedding the virus – through coughs, sneezes and other respiratory droplets – for 48 hours before they start feeling sick.
While others who have the virus (up to 25%), may never feel symptoms but may still play a role in transmitting it, according to Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thus, it may do you more good than harm if you will cover your face in times like this.
Consequent to the recent CDC recommendation, people can expect a massive spike in the production and purchase of cloth face coverings within the lifestyle and fashion spaces.
We at Greco Promotions are also reacting quickly by partnering with local manufacturers to produce non medical masks using fabrics from their warehouses.
We have started accepting orders for cloth masks weeks ago.
These efforts are intended to not just address the limited supply of surgical and N95 masks that our medical practitioners require seriously at the moment, but also to address our own needs.
And we aim to not just provide for the general public’s personal safety use, but also to contribute in the prevention of panic buying and inappropriate purchasing of the scarce medical-grade materials that our heroes on the frontlines needed badly to do their jobs safely nowadays.
